Hubpages v Excerptz

    I transferred a few posts over from here to Excerptz to see what happened. Most of them are still 'drafts' as I'm waiting for them to be de-indexed from Google.

    Very early days but bearing in mind I have 1 active hub at Excerpts and now 32 here, the numbers are small today but I have nearly half my hits coming from excerptz ... Will be interesting to see what happens when I've posted a few more there .. I'll keep you posted :-)

    Excerptz is one of Ryan Kett's sites. It's in another thread here, somewhere. Don't have time to find the link.

        Not sure. This is the only one that came up in the forums that I became aware of.

    I've held off posting on this topic a while to see how things went.

    My current situation is that I have approx 30 hubs on HP and around 20 articles on Excerptz.

    My stats have been showing more hits off hubpages generally for the last couple of weeks, however, as I suspected, now the Royal Wedding is done and dusted, my HP stats have plumetted as one of them was getting good hits and yesterdays figures were HP 7 Excerptz 39 .. not big hits of course in the slightest but percentage wise quite interesting. Moneywise, difficult to compare yet as it's scrappy bits here and there but it does perhaps indicate that Excerptz has a better chance of getting articles ranked higher than HP.

    I will say that I haven't really backlinked or anything yet either.

    Will post back after a little while with progress

      Interesting stuff Ritsos - I have joined Excerptz, but not posted anything there yet. When I do I will let you know how the traffic goes.

      Have you tried This is Freelance - another site run by a respected hubber?
